MADAME ABBOT RETURNS
When 1 arrived back at Abbot
in 1943 after many decades, I was
as bewildered as the rest of the
Preps because Abbot had changed
so! Calling hour! Dancing! Lip-
stick! Those gym suits! But the
spirit is the same and the traditions
have grown to something deep and
MARGUERITE CAPEX HEARSEY
When Miss Hearsey returned last June,
we all looked forward to September and
this school year. To Seniors, it meant
Sunday-night suppers at Sunset and in-
spiring poetry classes. To the underclass-
men, the renewal of an acquaintance with
inexhaustible energy and a bright per-
sonality. The new girls found a friend
with special interest in each of them. To
us all. her return meant another vear with
a leader who has made us cherish Abbot.
ALICE CURTISS SWEENEY
She seemed formidable to us as new-
girls, but we soon discovered her genuine
interest in each of us and her willingness
to help us. Understanding us so well, she
helped us to become aware of our limita-
tions and our potentialities. Vse will ever
be grateful for her thoughtful advice
about our school life as Director of
Studies. Her interpretations of plays and
essays and her penetrating comments as
our teacher, and her kind and subtle
humor will always be with us.

In my fourth year at Abbot I
found myself to be a senior. I felt
important with all the privileges
that seemed so new to me, but I
soon discovered seniors merited
them through hard work and by
accepting new responsibilities.
Nevertheless, I think that noth-
ing can top the life of a senior at
In Which We Say Good-bye
This year of 1948 was
marked by many world
shaking events. . .we re-
turned to Abbot as full
fledged Seniors; ours was
the task to set a good ex-
ample for the rest of the
school; it was our bright
chitchat which was to liven
up dreary breakfast tallies;
these were our new respon-
sibilities, but there were
also new privileges . . . we be-
came the custodians of the
Senior Parlor and the sole
owners of the Parlor's Bos-
ton Herald: we carried the
scarlet banner to the white
sands of Ipswich Beach;
Boston was invaded by
hordes of high-heeled Sen-
iors taking advantage of
their new-found freedom.
Our talent was displayed
in 'I Have Five Daugh-
ters" . . . December six-
teenth we received Abbots
Christinas present, the em-
blem of Seniorhood. our
rings. . .the next day we
departed for Christinas Va-
cation. Intervale was a
welcome relief for our
exam-weary brains, and
even to the non-skiing mem-
bers of our class. Intervale
was indeed a "little bit of
heaven.'' College Boards
found us fondly dreaming
of non-C. B. requiring uni-
versities. The middle of
April brought the substitu-
tion of Emily Post for
drearv textbooks, our last
Abbot Prom was nearly
upon us. . .everything at
the prom was as it should
have been as we danced
under the scarlet banner.
Then came graduation
weekend with its Senior
Banquet. Garden Party.
Baccalaureate, mothers, fa-
thers, uncles and aunts. As
we made our last official
trip to the South Church,
our emotions were mixed,
we felt pride in the accom-
plishments of the past years
and a sense of greater re-
sponsibility for the future
but overshadowing all was
a deep sadness, for we were

The Class of Forty -Eight is marching by.
Our Scarlet Banner proudly waves on high;
It stands for purpose clear and courage true,
For spirit, loyalty and friendship ever new.
And when the Class of Forty-Eight has gone,
The things she stood for will still linger on;
So all the best in us we'll dedicate
To the Class of Forty -Eight!

Monday night arrived
and amid a mad frenzy of
packing we Seniors forgot
about exams and our fears
concerning them and turned
our minds towards Inter-
vale and all the wonderful
times we'd have there: lis-
tening to Pooh, toboggan-
ing, skiing, and being gen-
erally un-Abbotish. We
scaled Mount Cranmore (in
the Skimobile) and, despite
an icy slope, weren't too
uncomfortable from bruises
and twisted knees. We won-
der, though, if the handsome
members of the Ski Patrol
got tired of picking us up
from the sides of the moun-
tain and whether the schuss-
boomers broke any bones
over our numerous bath-
tubs. We returned to our
haven at Russell's each
night and although our ap-
petites were ferocious, there
was always more food than
we could eat and afterwards
a bridge game and a warm
The time to leave came
much too soon, but as all
good things must come to
an end, we paid our fare-
wells and caught our train
amid thoughts tinged with
laughter and longing.

The Student Government is the
group of girls, headed this year
by "Lish" Cooper, who take
part in the administration of the
school. They represent the stu-
dent body where the Rating
System, election of student offi-
cers, and maintenance of Abbot
standards are concerned. The
underlying aim of the Student
Government in addition to main-
taining discipline and school
spirit, is to develop in the stu-
dents a sense of responsibility
for those about them. This vear
our particular aim has been to
strengthen the Rating System,
and to let a larger number of
students participate in the school
This year A.C.A. with the
help of W.S.S.F. has continued
to work, both in Andover and in
places far away, to aid some of
the relief organizations, and at
Abbot to try to keep the whole
school aware of the hunger and
nakedness which it might help
to alleviate. We have been kept
busy from the beginning of the
year, right up to the party given
at Christmas for the underpriv-
ileged children of Andover.
CARE packages have been going-
out right along, and the Christ-
mas dolls for Hindman left on

but varied services, to do some-
thing to ameliorate the suffering
so rampant in the world.

The Abbot Dramatic Society
this year has felt the loss of our
director, Mrs. Gray, who for thirty
years had given herself unstintingly
to the dramatic and cultural life
of Abbot. Miss Hearsey expressed
our feelings with regard to our
sudden loss when she spoke of Mrs.
Gray in Chapel after the news of
her death came to us. She told of
her long service to Abbot, of her
coming to the faculty in 1917, and
of her constant devotion and en-
thusiasm for her work here.
Mrs. Gray started A.D.S. soon
after she came, and had directed

its yearly plays ever since. She
undertook each new play with
complete absorption and a tireless
determination to make it the best
she had yet put on. Her chief con-
tribution, however, came not in
these dramatic productions as a
whole but in the help and inspira-
tion she gave individual girls.
This year's play, "Outward
Bound", was one which Mrs. Gray
long wanted to see presented by
her societv. It had been cast at
the time of her death and was later
given as a reading. A.D.S. owes
much to its president, Salley Ma-
cartney, who took charge of it.
The reading was something Mrs.
Gray would have been proud to

As early as 1798 Messrs. Ames and Parker had set up a
printing press in Andover. Enlarged during the early years of
the nineteenth century through the enterprise of Dr. Eliphalet
Pearson, the first principal of Phillips Academy, Andover,
which had been established 20 years earlier, the press became
widely known throughout the United States and many foreign
countries through the publications printed for Harvard Univer-
sity and the Andover Theological Seminary.
The present Andover Press, building on noble traditions, is
today perhaps the best-known school and college print shop in-
New England. Proud of a glorious past, but not satisfied to rest
on its laurels, the press has kept pace with the times by enlarging
its plant and adding modern equipment in all departments.
In its one hundred and fiftieth year, the Andover Press, Ltd.,
is proud to number among its publications
the 1948 ABBOT CIRCLE.
